The EU Single Market is about to enter a new era of promoting investment in innovation. The long-awaited arrival of the Unitary Patent and the Unified Patent Court, set to become operational in early 2023, will boost the development and trade of IP-intensive goods and services, spark up FDI flows and facilitate the scaling-up of European innovative SMEs.
Join us at the conference we are organising to mark this milestone in the completion of the EU’s single market for innovation.
This conference will welcome a host of high-level speakers, including the Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Economy, the EU Commissioner for the Internal Market (tbc) and the President of the European Patent Office. They will discuss the various avenues the Unitary Patent and the Unified Patent Court will open up for IP protection, as well as their potential to boost innovation across Europe. It`s an opportunity you cannot miss!
The conference will take place in Brussels on Thursday 17.11.2022.
We hope to be able to count you among the participants.
